Real tennis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search It has been suggested that Jeu de paume be merged into this article or section. ( Discuss Jeu de paume in the 17th century. Real tennis is the original racquet sport from which the modern game of lawn tennis, or tennis , is descended. It is also known as jeu de paume in France , "court tennis" in the United States , and "royal tennis" in Australia. The term "real" may be a corruption of "royal" and related to the game's connection with royalty during its heyday in England and France in the and 17th centuries . Others believe that "real" was first used at the end of the century as a retronym to distinguish it from the then recently invented game of lawn tennis. Real tennis players often just call the game "tennis", describing the modern game as "lawn tennis". Real tennis is still played by enthusiasts on about 35 existing courts in the United Kingdom Australia , the United States , and France . The sport is supported and governed by organizations around the world

The Oxford University Tennis Club is the home of "Real Tennis". This is the original "royal" tennis (think Real as in Real Madrid, meaning 'regal') played in an indoor court with sloping surfaces, galleries, and other unusual features.
The club is open to all, not just to members of the University. There is play at all levels with junior, student and senior members playing all year round. The club is a friendly place, presided over by two full-time professionals, and membership is simple - just phone or call in and talk to the pros. If you'd like to know more about the sport, you're welcome to come along to the club and watch a game. Or you can find an introduction to the "king of racquet sports" and its rules under About Real Tennis Note: The other kind of tennis (known by some of our members as 'unreal' or 'modern' tennis!) can be found at the University's Lawn Tennis Club

13. Why Play Real Tennis?
Bristol Bath Tennis Club real tennis in the Heart of the West Country.
One might have thought that a game dating back to the 14th century would have died out, but despite our high tech society quite the reverse is true. It is being played by a more varied cross section of people than ever before and the rules have hardly changed in 450 years. New courts are being built, and there are an ever increasing number of new players, including a substantial number of converts from lawn tennis and squash. Devotees of the game will give you many reasons for its popularity:
It combines elements of lawn tennis, squash and backgammon into one game
The handicapping system allows players of varied ability, age and experience to compete on equal terms - the outcome of a game of Real Tennis is never a foregone conclusion!
As well as providing a physical and intellectual challenge, Real Tennis offers excellent social benefits; fellow enthusiasts provide a welcoming and inclusive community, both locally and worldwide

The origin of Tennis, like so many Sports and Games is something of a mystery with various theories having been espoused. One version would have us believe that Stone Age man once hit rocks backwards and forwards with clubs, perhaps. A more substantial beginning is that Tennis derived from Handball, a version of which was played in the ancient world including the civilisations of Rome, Greece and Egypt. There is an Egyptian town on the Nile called Tinnis (in Arabic) and some speculate that this is the origin of the name 'Tennis'. Another string to this theory's bow is that the term 'racquet' is thought to derive from the Arabic word 'rahat' which means 'the palm of the hand' By the 14th century, Tennis had found its way to England where both Henry VII and Henry VIII apparently became keen players and instigated the building of courts up and down the country. Apparently Henry VIII invented the 'service' - his servants used to throw the ball up in the air for him because he was too fat to do it himself. The Tennis racket by 1500 was no longer completely made of wood but consisted of a wooden handle with a sheep gut strung head. The Royal enthusiasm for the game continued both in France during the sixteenth century where there were apparently more than 1000 courts in Paris alone at that time and in England during the Tudor seventeenth century. Notable English royal players include George IV (1763-1830), Prince Albert (1819-1861) who owned a locker in the changing room at Hampton Court Palace which still bears his name, Edward VII (1842-1910) and George V (1866-1936). For unknown reasons, the game's popularity waned in France and England during the 17th century and in France it was virtually non-existent by 1800.

The Game of Real Tennis
[The following information is taken from the Cambridge Real Tennis web page , used by permission.] Interior of Cambridge University court Real Tennis is king of all racquet sports, a game where subtlety and thought are more prized than power and fitness. It is played in an asymmetrical court which contains many unusual features, sloping roofs, openings (galleries) in the walls and a main wall which has a kink in it (tambour) so the ball on hitting the sloping face moves across the court instead of continuing down the line of the main wall. It has the classic elements of warfare where a failed attack is punished by a counter-attack. The game is played with racquets made of wood, of reasonable dimensions (not those over-sized snow shoes favoured by lawn tennis players), and with hand-made balls re-covered every week with new cloth. The ball can be given spin either by the player or by contact with the wall and the action of this spin can be even more deadly than Shane Warne. Reading the spin is an important part of the game; initially one is totally bewildered by the spin but soon one begins to judge where the ball will move after contact. More information on the game of real tennis: History of the game Real tennis has a long history. It was a favourite of many kings in the past, but is now enjoyed by people from all walks of life.
